Among the assortment of theories in paranormal studies is the theory that ghosts may be imprinted upon an existing surface of a building, such as a wall or a door frame. Similar to a taped recording, the ghost will reappear at different intervals. Removing or altering the surface can cause portions of the recording to fade, eventually disappearing entirely. But the occurrences in this building turn this theory around.
Nick the phone technician was programming a phone system at the Senior Center. However something was interfering with Nick's programming efforts. The phone was actually programming itself. Nick called the main office and described what was occurring. They told him that was impossible. Nick said he had 4 witnesses on his end. He unplugged the phone system for two minutes and then reconnected it; now the memory was completely erased, which is not supposed to happen. Every time he would set down his tools and flashlight they would be moved when he went to grab them again. He was extremely frustrated.
This activity went on for days. Not ever believing in the supernatural Nick was forced to accept that something paranormal was at play here. Finally at his wits end, he yelled at the ghost and much to his surprise the phone system began to work. He finished up the job, but as he went on to new jobs the ghost actually followed him! After two long days of phone systems lighting up erratically, and tools being moved, and nothing working appropriately for Nick, he again spoke out loud to the ghost. While on his way to work he said "fine if you want to work with me that's just great, but you need to follow directions. These people count on their phones, so just do what I tell you". When he got to the job site and began working on the phones, much to his dismay he started having problems with the system programming itself again. He yelled at the ghost and immediately all of the books on the shelf next to him slammed to the floor. Nick was really frightened, but that was the end of the ghostly apprenticeship!
